Summit Entertainment has made us wait four long months after the release of “New Moon” to get any sort of tease for “Eclipse.” It kind of hurts that after all that they only gave us 10 seconds, but fret not, “Twilight” fans, because a full trailer is heading our way tomorrow.
There’s not much to say about the 10 seconds, but it shows a lot about where the emphasis of the film will be. “Eclipse” is one big sexual-tension-filled love fest between Edward, Bella and Jacob, and this trailer shows exactly that
First there’s the blink-and-you-miss-it shot of Bella and Edward in their meadow, which there isn’t much to say about except we missed it in our first time viewing the teaser, and it’s awfully darn pretty.
Then the teaser shows Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) lying in bed together, and he says, “I know the consequences of the choice you’re making.” This choice could refer to one of the two that were agreed upon in the final seconds of “New Moon”: that Edward would turn Bella into a vampire, but only if she married him. We’re guessing it’s the former.
Then (of course) we get a shirtless shot of Jacob (Taylor Lautner) looking — is it even possible? — more buff. “I’m going to fight for you,” he says, “until your heart stops beating.” The heart-breaking, torn look in Bella’s eyes shows that she might actually be considering it.
While we argued earlier that “Eclipse” could be the most guy-friendly “Twilight” yet, this tease is all about the Edward-Bella-Jacob love triangle, and that will whet fans’ appetites more than anything else. But we guess the full trailer is going to have some serious action shots as well as Victoria and her newborn army to reach out to other audiences that would typically disregard “Eclipse.” But hey, if the Academy can acknowledge “The Twilight Saga” as a horror film (which it is so not), maybe audiences can open their eyes too?
What did you think of the teaser, Crushers? What do you hope to see in the full trailer tomorrow?
